Woo-hoo!

We've had such a busy week with Vacation Bible School and visiting with family that I was completely surprised by receiving an advanced copy of the book I wrote during November and December last year.

 

 

I was super excited to show my Grandma it when it arrived since I had dedicated the book to her.  She was the person in my young life that was crafty and creative and she took the time to share that with me.  -Thank you Grandma!

I'm so excited to share more about the book as the launch date draws closer, but in the meanwhile you can see more about it on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2tNDDp0

I have a lot of projects to share with you and I figured the easiest and quickest way to do it is to whip up a video, so here you go:

 

 

 If As I finish up projects I'll post them here on my blog.  :)

More Circle Journaling!

Here's the rest of the pages I did this past week.  These are also for the set of Circle Journals my girlfriends and I are doing. 

I-AM 1

For these pages we had to answer the following questions:

  • What's your favorite color?
  • What is your favorite animal?
  • What is your favorite body of water?
  • If you were in a white room with NO windows and NO doors how would your feel?

We had to answer each of these describing at least 3 feelings.


I-AM 1

I ended up answering the questions in a little matchbook and inserted it in the page protector. I just used my craft knife to add slits to the plastic so I could pull the cover and page inserts through.

Inside the matchbook...

This was fun to do.  I've been doing so many pocket pages when I scrapbook that it was fun to do full pages.

Family Reunion

It was so neat to go out to Montana for our family reunion.  It was both my niece's & my first time there and we both really loved it for the beauty of the people and nature.

While there had been other big Lincoln Family reunions in the past, this was the first one that I've been able to attend. It was really cool to finally meet people that I'd heard stories about growing up and also the ones I had no clue I was related to.  To just be sitting there talking with someone and realize that they had the same green eyes as you was really cool!! (I don't think I've ever been in the same room as so many green eyed people before!)

The day before the actual reunion a lot of us met up at the Lincoln Family barn at the Museum of the Rockies for a group pic. Hello bright Montana sun!!

A BIG thanks to all the family that worked so hard to put this all together and to everyone who attended.  We are so thankful for the new relationships & connections formed!

 PS - For those who follow my blog for art and missed it...here's the art journal post I did on being a Lincoln.
